CFP: The Second International Workshop on Mobile Multimedia Processing (WMMP'10)

OVERVIEW

The Second International Workshop on Mobile Multimedia Processing will be held in Istanbul, Turkey, on August 22, 2010, in conjunction with the 20th International Conference on Pattern Recognition (ICPR 2010). This is the follow-up of the successful First International Workshop on Mobile Multimedia Processing held in conjunction with 19th ICPR in Tampa, Florida, 2008. The motivation of this workshop series is to timely address the challenges in applying advanced pattern recognition, signal processing, computer vision and multimedia techniques to mobile systems, given the proliferating market of mobile and portable devices that have been widely spreading in both consumer (e.g. smartphones such as iPhone, music, mobile TV, digital cameras, HDTV) and industrial markets (e.g. control, medical, defense etc.).

One aim of the workshop is to bring together researchers in pattern recognition as well as in mobile interaction, ubiquitous computing, and multimedia. The intended audiences of this workshop are researchers in traditional pattern recognition and media processing techniques wanting to extend their work in the mobile domain, and those researchers in mobile interaction, ubiquitous computing, and cross related fields wanting to explore latest achievements in the pattern recognition field to expand their work.

SCOPE

The motivation of this workshop is to timely address the challenges in applying advanced pattern recognition, signal processing, computer vision and multimedia techniques to mobile systems, given the proliferating market of mobile and portable devices that have been widely spreading in both consumer (e.g. smartphones such as iPhone, music, mobile TV, digital cameras, HDTV) and industrial markets (e.g.

control, medical, defense). The proposed scope of this workshop includes, but is not limited to, the following areas:

- Mobile speech, image and video processing

- Surveillance, biometric, authentication and security technologies in mobile environment

- Mobile visual search

- Mobile image retrieval

- Mobile augmented reality browsers

- Mobile video streaming

- Multimodal pedestrian navigation systems

- Multimedia applications for automotive systems

- Mobile navigation, content retrieval, authentication

- Pervasive computing / context aware methodology and application

- Multimodal interfaces and visualization for mobile devices

- Handheld augmented reality

- Personalization and recommender systems in mobile environment

- Mobile oriented media processing for communication and networking

- Medical applications and bioinformatics in mobile environment

- Entertainment applications in mobile environment

- Mobile multimedia applications in geospatial information systems
